Amongst the rising juniors that attended Dawg Night at the University of Georgia was Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage running back Greg Bryant.
"It was a great time," Bryant said. "I liked their facilities. I like how they treat people at Georgia. I liked the coaches, all of the coaches, they support you and cheer for you. They also don't tell you anything that isn't going to be true."
The 5-foot-10, 193-pounder actually spent a portion of Friday and Saturday on campus. He participated in the Dawg Night event and then took a tour on Saturday to learn more about the school and football program.
As for the camp itself, Bryant enjoyed competing with some great talent at his position.
"The camp was really good," Bryant said. "There was a lot of competition. There were running backs from all over. I think there were only two from Florida, but there was a lot of good competition."
Bryant made such a positive impression on the staff that he can now claims an offer from the SEC.
"After the camp, Coach (Mark) Richt and Coach (Bryan) McClendon, the running backs coach, they told me they would love to coach me and that they wanted me to know that I had an offer from them," Bryant said. "They said that if I wanted to come back for a tour of the school, that they would show me everything. That is what I did today when I went back there."
In addition to Georgia, Bryant has offers from Bowling Green, Marshall, and Minnesota.
When he received his offer wasn't the only time Bryant and his family got some one-on-one attention from the Bulldog staff.
"I got a chance to talk to Coach Richt for about 10 minutes," Bryant said. "My dad actually talked to him a lot. The conversations went real good. He just told me he would love to coach me."
All in all, Bryant is returning to the Sunshine State with a lot of appreciation and interest with regards to playing football in Athens, Ga.
"I like Georgia a lot right now," Bryant said. "I just really like how they treat people. When I stepped on the field, I just loved it. I really liked everything about them."
His appreciation for Georgia existed even prior to stepping on campus.
"I have always watched them on television as well," Bryant said. "I like their colors, the red and black. I also like their history at running back. I really like watching their running backs, guys like Knowshon (Moreno) and Herschel Walker."
While he still has a junior and senior season to play before he has to make a decision, Bryant admits that two schools are standing out.
"Actually, after what I have seen there it is them and Florida right now," Bryant said. "Florida hasn't offered me. I always talked to Coach Aubrey Hill at Florida. He said at Friday Night Lights I will get offered."
Bryant will attend Florida's annual event on Friday at the Swamp.
As a sophomore, Bryant rushed for 690 yards and 13 touchdowns on just 80 carries.
